Great grilled hot dogs, but theyre fries are out of this world! Hubby puts vinegar on them, I do not! Or you can get chili & cheese on them....any way you eat'em theyre great!! Try a sundae before you leave, its worth it!!
They have outdoor seating in spring & summer & fall, or a small indoor area, its cute because its in a victorian home! Christmastime they put out a giant santa outside that is cute for the kiddos!

Everybody likes a good hot dog and they have them here. They are a little pricey unless you order a combo or have a coupon. I personally love their fries. I will go in just to buy them to go. On their tables they have this seasoning that I dump in the bag and shake them up. Makes the fries taste like no other. Add a soda from there and i'm satisfied. They also use to offer ice cream sundaes ect. which were good on hot days. You can eat in or outside. There is limited parking in back, so please read the street signs if parking on the street.

This a a favorite local hotdog coney style restaurant in an old century home. Family owned and operated and very famous for being close to school so local sporting events will be packed from outsiders. Also a stop in the khumar movie with whitecastle but not mentioned... the fries are a must to have get the package deal if family...

I lot of Amherst people love this place and so keep coming back. It's nostalgia. I only visit once or twice a year and the restaurant keeps slipping downhill. Today I came in for a couple of jumbo dogs and some fries. I expected to get a couple of nice cooked dogs. Instead, they dropped the dogs into a basket and put them into the fryer. Rather than get a couple of well cooked flavorful dogs, I got two greasy dogs that tasted like all of the stuff they had fried in the oil and they were dark and had a leathery skin to them. Ugh. The fries used to be to die for. Tasty, crisp on the outside and soft inside. Todays fries were just greasy and tasted about the same as the dogs. They have been slipping for a couple of years and this last pricey load of grease was the last straw. This disgusting heap of stuff cost me $17. I won't be back unless someone else takes it over and brings it back to it's original glory. By the way, if the description of the food wasn't too appetizing, don't take a close look at the grill area behind the counter. It looked dirty and disgusting with tons of food debris all over the floor. They should clean the place sometime. People tend to keep thinking of someplace as good when they have good childhood memories of it. That's a poor way to rate a place. It's just not that good anymore.
